    I love Christmas cake and wondered if you could make this in an air fryer. It was delicious and i made another one to keep for Christmas, thanks.

  2. Hi Samantha,

    My air fryer’s lowest temperature is 180c. Is it still possible to use this for the cake?
    What timing would you recommend?

    1. Hi Steve,

      I would say it is going to be hard as the air fryer cooks from the top and relies on good circulation around the food to cook it evenly. So if you only have 180c as the lowest you could try a few things. Stick to the same times we have in our recipe and place grease proof paper over the cake and tuck it in so it will not get sucked up on to the element of your air fryer and something else which is not for the faint hearted after cooking it half way try and tip it into another cooking tray if you have one and cook it on the other side.

      Sorry for the long answer but when a manufacturer only does certain temperatures if really does limit what you can cook in an air fryer, hope these can help you make your christmas cake 🙂

  3. Hi Samantha , I was wondering if you used a deep pan cake tin when air frying the Christmas cake or was it a sandwich cake tin you’d use for a sponge … ?

    1. Hi Manda,

      We used a silicone cake mould 7 inch which are readily available on Amazon and as you see in the recipe it fitted perfect in our air fryer which was the Philips XL 🙂

    1. Hi Linda,

      Sorry for the late reply, we would always use the air fry option as this is how we cooked it in our air fryer which do not give any option, just air fry and that is it 🙂

    Cooking gor 40min @ 150, then 10min @ 160 left the mix cooker on top but uncooked inside. Silicon cake tin was tight fit in air fryer, could that be the problem ?.
    Turned top upside down in another tin, left soft Center in silicon tin and put both into oven. Should get something to eat with custard, does taste lovely.

    1. Hi keith,

      Yes if it is a very tight fit this can be a problem as the air gets restricted movement around the food, this is what makes air fryers so great a good flow of air. Half the problem is the many different air fryers and the many different silicone tins that are on the market, so we link to the ones that fit in the air fryer we use 🙂
